Ok. I've been awaiting my first eggs for a bit. I actually have had one layer (a SLW that we got as an already laying pullet) since October. But my August Chicks are just coming into lay. My Gold Sex Link who is very friendly was easy to identify her egg. She had been crouching anytime I came near and then her egg was a definite different color. But my Barred Rock keeps her distance from me so I didn't see any crouching but her comb has been really red for longer than the Gold Sex Link. There was an egg last week that was just a tiny bit paler than my SLW egg. It looked a little smaller but was similar in weight to my SLWs eggs. I ended up figuring that it was the SLWs and it was just a little smaller and slightly diff color. But the next day her egg was back to size and color. And today I got another slightly paler egg and it would be off schedule for my SLW. Do you think this could be my Barred Rock? Or is it possible that my SLW is just laying a paler egg every once in a while. I suppose if they get it together and I get three eggs in one day - I'll know!
